SAVASTANO, Luis E.  and  NIJENSOHN, Daniel E.. Historia de los neurocirujanos argentinos en el mundo tercera parte. Rev. argent. neurocir. [online]. 2010, vol.24, n.4, pp.1-9. ISSN 1850-1532.

Modern neurosurgery as a discipline of medicine and as a specialty of surgery was born mainly in the northern hemisphere and in the 20th Century. South American pioneers, including Argentine neurosurgeons trained in foreign medical institutions and then came back to start local neurosurgical centers and training programs. The 20th Century witnessed the phenomenon of increased migration of peoples. Some Argentine neurosurgeons established their residence outside Argentina where they practiced and some are still practicing the "Princess of Surgical Specialties". A brief summary of the development of neurosurgery in the World, South America, and Argentina was included in the first article. It preceded a number of biographical sketches describing the personal and professional lives of some Argentine neurosurgeons throughout the world. This is the third article of four. The last one will include a discussion and conclusions. This contribution adds to the excellent publications dealing with the history of neurosurgery in Argentina.
